ESPN NBA writer Chris Palmer apparently believes he’s a bomb expert.

On Tuesday afternoon, multiple videos of an explosion in Beirut made their way on the Internet.

The explosion was initially reported to be at a fireworks factory but that has yet to be confirmed.

Despite the fact that people are still gathering information on the matter, ESPN NBA writer Chris Palmer confidently claimed that the explosion was “atomic” because of the mushroom cloud seen in the video.

Palmer would go on to double down on his claims that the explosion was “atomic.”

Palmer was immediately slammed by nuclear experts as well as other members of the media for spreading misinformation.
